On February 1, 2003, the unthinkable happened. The space shuttle Columbia disintegrated 37 miles above Texas, seven brave astronauts were killed and America's space program, always an eyeblink from disaster, suffered its second catastrophic in-flight failure. Unlike the Challenger disaster 17 years earlier, Columbia's destruction left the nation one failure away from the potential abandonment of human space exploration. Media coverage in the immediate aftermath focused on the possible cause of the disaster, and on the nation's grief. But the full human story, and the shocking details of NASA's crucial mistakes, have never been told -- until now. Based on dozens of exclusive interviews, never-before-published documents and recordings of key meetings obtained by the authors, Comm Check takes the reader inside the conference rooms and offices where NASA's best and brightest managed the nation's multi-billion-dollar shuttle program -- and where they failed to recognize the signs of an impending disaster. It is the story of a space program pushed to the brink of failure by relentless political pressure, shrinking budgets and flawed decision making. The independent investigation into the disaster uncovered why Columbia broke apart in the sky above Texas. Comm Check brings that story to life with the human drama behind the tragedy. Michael Cabbage and William Harwood, two of America's most respected space journalists, are veterans of all but a handful of NASA's 113 shuttle missions. Tapping a network of sources and bringing a combined three decades of experience to bear, the authors provide a rare glimpse into NASA's inner circles, chronicling the agency's most devastating failure and the challenges that face NASA as it struggles to return America to space.

The story of survival of a huge, mega-earthquake in the Los Angeles area involves one family and how they are able to prepare and cope with a myriad of problems and challenges. The tale involves many ethical and moral dilemmas, which arise throughout the entire story. Also included are the numerous recommendations and suggestions of how to prepare for the worst case scenarios, far more deadly than those depicted by the various governmental agencies responsible for the ultimate rescue of the civilian victims. The maxim is basically to anticipate the largest degree of catastrophe possible, prepare for same and, if conditions are less then predicted, survival will be accomplished more easily. The fictional content is sprinkled, generously, with ideas, thoughts and suggestions as to how to effectively deal with a tremendous natural disaster. Remember, its not if this will happen, its only a matter of when.
